  • CLAD or BCLAD certificates;
  • Demonstrated subject competence through appropriate examination or coursework;
  • Background clearance from FBI/DOJ

  • A commitment to train in the various curricular programs and methods implemented at WISH.

 

Responsibilities

Teachers will be responsible for implementing the WISH educational program in their classrooms.  They must coordinate their planning and instruction with their teaching partner, and work collaboratively with the Principal, Curriculum Developer, and the Interventionists.  Teachers will design assessments, evaluate assessment results and adjust their instruction based upon these results.  Teachers will need to follow and enforce WISH policies such as those relating to attendance reporting, at-risk identification and intervention, and positive behavior support procedures.
